“There are no plans at the moment to bring the original Monster Hunter Stories to the Nintendo Switch”
They also explained that players new to the franchise won’t have anything to worry about as the second game titled Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will feature a a new storyline and protagonist. Tsujimoto went on to say:
“While it’s set in the same world, the game has absolutely been designed so that players can jump straight into Monster Hunter Stories 2.”
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin for Nintendo Switch is due to be released summer 2021.
